I started moving into some of the more competitive areas, and now I have to play the .01 isk game with people.  The profit is a bit better though; I've made about 35 million isk yesterday! It gives me a chance to catch up on any tv shows that I missed though! One thing to remember while trading is that it can be boring, but addicting.  It really is something watching your wallet grow to new heights, but to pass the time you should have something else you can do between updating trade orders, make a pew pew account, watch tv, or even play some other video game!

I also started training a few of the base skills to do some ninja salvaging, but now I have to look up what probing skills I need to find people. It will probably take me about 3 days of training to get all the Astrometric Skills, and I really need to finish up retail 5.  I'm down to 6 free trade slots at the moment.

I think that I will work on those skills after I finish up retail 5.  Once I get some experience doing it, I will throw together a detailed guide on Isk Watch for anyone that wants to try it themselves. It is going to be very tempting to use an alt to kill anyone that does try and kill me for ninja salvaging their mission.  It would be mainly for the kill mails, but I guess that would be against the rules. Stay Tuned.


  1. Without asking you to divulge too much, what areas do you consider extremely competitive? I have been following your guide and have been sticking mainly in ammo (cheap stuff, started from scratch) and almost all my buys and sells are penny changes.

  2. Another note, very curious to see anything you can share about ninja salvaging!

  3. I think Jita as a whole is very competitive, and I generally avoid it like the plague. I'm not quite sure why I am using Jita for this guide actually. I like all the other hubs. They have better margins, but turn over is a bit slower.

    The competitiveness scales with what you are trading, people do not stick with the cheap stuff. The worst by far has to be any minerals, especially moon minerals. That stuff is extremely competitive and violate.
